DriveFreedom is looking for independent own-car delivery drivers to join a pilot project in Central Florida- Tampa, Orlando and surrounding areas. We identify better paying temporary gigs from local restaurants and other businesses and match them with suitable member drivers.
Our mission is to help our members get better paying gigs, make more money and enjoy better working conditions. Let’s help support local restaurants by cutting out the middleman apps that suck the community dry!
Helping businesses find drivers
Restaurants! Other businesses and individuals! Do you want independent contractor own-car drivers to help you out with shifts, routes and one-off gigs. We can help you find quality drivers to interview.
Add a ‘Request a Driver’ listing at https://drivefreedom.io. DriveFreedom staff will only pass your information to our member drivers who pass our tests and are a good match for your needs. We seek delivery gigs while avoiding exploitative rates.
Drivers list for better wages
In this direct p2p ‘classified’ advertising model drivers join the directory. They create directory listings with photos and videos. Most importantly drivers set their own expected rates and conditions of work. For instance a standard car delivery driver may identify with an hourly rate of $15 plus tips. Under ‘Extras’ a driver may propose surcharges for long distances and other considerations. A booking calendar system allows a driver to switch off search on certain days. For instance a driver may not be available on Tuesdays.
The hourly rate indicator will keep away ’employers’ seeking extremely low rates like $8 an hour inclusive of vehicle. The listing will show how you present yourself and the condition of your vehicle. Also, the listing allows restaurants and other businesses to call for help, even at higher rates when someone goes out sick, orders are high or they see the value of the prospect driver.
Matching drivers and businesses at fair rates
DriveFreedom is pro-active, always seeking active gigs for drivers. The mission is to create a pool of safe, good delivery drivers while weeding out bad actors. By collecting data the expectation in the pilot project is to advise both groups of acceptable offers and conditions of work.
In a market shortage of drivers expect that ‘wages’ will be higher, while in a glut of drivers offers may be lower. DriveFreedom wants to promote fair offers, and help drivers avoid exploitation. This is possible by having a pool of willing drivers setting reasonable asking rates and conditions on the platform.
